In the ISC opening keynote, the conference was told that Europe is failing to persuade enough small and medium companies to take advantage of high performance computing and engineering simulation, even though HPC and CAE are essential tools in modern industry.
Researchers at the University of Lincoln in the U.K. are using the BlueBEAR HPC service to simulate the use of protons for CT imaging. Generally reliant on X-rays to image the body’s composition and healthy tissue location before treatment, doctors are looking to the the project to build a device capable of delivering protons in a clinical setting.
Today SGI announced that Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) has selected the company’s supercomputing solutions to enable researchers to obtain insights from its premier genomic databases. With the ability to diagnose patients with more accuracy and speed, ITMI will enable a higher level of treatment and care for the diverse population it serves.
Daniel Ahlin from KTH (Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology) presented this talk at the DDN User Group at ISC 2015. “The PDC Center for High Performance Computing at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides leading HPC services to Swedish academia as part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) as well as internationally via the PRACE infrastructure.”
